THEY SAY! [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 3 October 1916
THEY SAY I No art can eclipse degradation which is not inspired by faith. An English audience iB the most tolerant in the world. There is purpose in the blind work ing of history. v Men are everlastingly preaching economy, and women are unceasingly practising it. The Church as a body has been apa thetic to social reform. | Every girl in the world is flattered by being told she is not in her pro per environment. Courage is a sublime form of hypo-; crisy. Where there is no fear there I can be no heroism. No acquired deformities, dismcm .berments, or mutilations arc ever transmitted to offspring. Nearly all our tragic blunders, per-; haps all of them, can be traced to! our materialism, for materialism | breeds apathy and self-satisfaction. | What is the objcct of the European J war ? Human liberty. That, and i nothing else. Human liberty is the j greatest thing in life, and it's for that we are fighting. j The " loneliest lad in the tightest I place is wrapped in our love and j pride. ...
Famous Clyde Commerce Raider. THE OLD "SEA KING." [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 3 October 1916
Famous Clyde Commerce ^ . , Raider. ■*'&lt; "T ' + THE OLD "SEA KING." It is questionable if in the history of the seven seas there is a more ro mantic story than that of the Clyde built tea-clipper, which became in turn British transport, tea-clipper, Confederate cruiser, peaceful trader, and Royal yacht. This, in brief, is the story of Stephen's old Sea King. The Sea King was a screw steamer of about 1200 tons,,built at Kelvin haugh, near Glasgow, by Messrs Alex. Stephen & Sons, Ltd., now of the famous Linthouse Shipbuilding Yard. Launched on August 17, 1863, with fitting eclat, the vessel was the first screw steamer built on the principle of iron frames and wood planking, and also the first steamer specially constructed for the China tea trade. These were the days of the great "China tea races," and the Sea King was built with a view of competing with the fastest 6hips then afloat in bringing home the first teas of the season. But in the comparatively in nocuous s...

In order to keep our connection, ercn at a heavy loss, we were compelled to keen going in the hope that the drought would break, We are also told 4d per quart is ample now.

NOTHING SERIOUS. v * GETTING EVEN. ' Into a smart garage strolled, a wealthy fcut plainly-dressed farmer. After some conversation, he began inspecting motor-cars. "I'll take that one," he said at length, indicating a luxurious vehicU worth eight hundred pounds. The salesman beamed, and hurried off to settle the deal. "Now, show me how to drive," commanded the purchaser. They started out, and spun merrily away out into the country. All went well until they overtook a cart in a narrow lane. The salesman worked the horn frantically, but the driver of the cart heeded not. • - "Look here," said the farmer quiet ly, "this is my car, ain't it?" "Yes, sir," said the salesman. "And I've paid for it ?" "Yes." "Then drive right into that block head's cart !" ordered the farmer. "That's the way motorists always treat me !"

What Waves Can Do. SOME WONDERFUL EXAMPLES OF THE STRENGTH OF THE MIGHTY DEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 3 October 1916
What Waves Can Do. _4 SOME WONDERFUL EXAMPLES OF THE STRENGTH OF THE MIGHTY DEEP. Unless you have been in a storm at sea—or, rather, out in the ocean—it is impossible to imagine the strength of the enormous rollers. These green hills of water, crcsted with snowy, foam, are sometimes 40 feet high, and the distance between one crest and the next as much aB a quarter of a mile. Such waveB travel at a speed of between thirty and forty miles an hour. These huge ocean waves, disport ing themselves on top of water two or three miles deep, are not danger ous unless a ship be driven into them. It is when they come crashing into shoal-water that they pile them selves up into real mountains and achieve such extraordinary feats of power. Near the Eddystone Lighthouse the sea is 200 fathoms, or 1,200 feet, deep. Within a little distance this decreases to 30 fathoms. Here &lt;?£orm-. waves heap up in real mountains of solid water fully one hundred feet in height. In a westerly gale the At...

MAKING IT PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 3 October 1916
MAKING IT PAY. Some time ago, a company oi theatricals stopped in a Braall town for one night only. The play was a wretched one, and the audience he came restless. Eggs, potatoes, and onions were rained upon the stage. Still the performance continued. The hero raved through his speeches, dodging an onion or an egg every other minute. But finally a member of the gallery let go a heavy boot, and the actor, thoroughly alarmed, started to retreat. "Keep on playing, you fool,'" hiss ed the rnanajger from the winge, as he hooked in the boot with an um brella. "Keep on till we get ths other one."

USEFUL ODDMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 October 1916
USEFUL ODDMENTS. It may be useful to know that lu minous paint, for use on keyholes or door-handle6, can be made by mixing a small' quantity of calcium sulphide with ordinary white paint. If the wind removes your felt hat, and something else cracks it, the crack can be removed by steaming it, placing a damp cloth over the place, and ironing with a hot iron. A rounded piece of wood must be held inside to receive the pressure of the iron. Grease marke on wallpaper will dis appear if a paste made of fuller's | earth and water be applied, left till dry, and then brushed off. The fact that there is no fool like an old fool doea not excuae a young one. ^ 2052.
